? >> reporter: the key for syria is russia and iran and there are indications now that russia may be open to some kind of deal and it is not for any altruistic region but they're trying to preserve what little influence they have inside syria. that is a key russian ally and they would be like to be on the forefront of brokering a deal rather than syria totally fall in the hands of jihadists and somebody risch shuns have no influence on. one of the reasons they may start to talk about the deal is high level defection. this was the general in charge of the military police. when he defected over to turkey it is very nasty thing to say about the regime and president assad because he is now joining the rebels. this is may be why the russians are starting to think about talking to people. there are report that is the syrian deputy foreign minister now in moscow for talks possibly trying to negotiate some kind of settlement, some kind of transition. how that would look where it would be anrd early transition rather than this civil war pushing out what is left with the regime whether that would b

at the centers for disease control and prevention, and also in equivalent institutions in russia. of course, one of the more active discussions that's gone on over the last couple of years has been whether or not those stocks should be destroyed in order to ensure that any opportunity for this to break out of those laboratories and get back into the population is reduced to zero as much as conceivably could be. the counterarguments to that, of course, is number one-- you'd be destroying a living species. the other is that you never know when you may need the live virus to be able to do research. one of the interesting things about smallpox is you don't need the virus to make the vaccine. the vaccine is a different virus. it's cowpox. and so you can produce lots of smallpox vaccine without needing the virus itself. the other interesting component of the smallpox story is that the fact that the disease has been eradicated and the fact that we stopped vaccinating the populations has made it a potentially very desirable bioterrorism agent. it's a highly transmissible illness. the levels of immunity
